illegal immigration. the u.s. justice department has, indeed, filed a lawsuit that challenges the state of arizona's tough new immigration law. the measure set to go into effect later this month. the law requires local police to question possible illegal immigrants and also makes it a crime for legal immigrants not to carry their documents. the obama administration argues federal law trumps the state law. the president himself called this plan misguided and one senior justice department official said today that allowing it opens the door for a patchwork of immigration laws across the country. we think that is untenable. but supporters say they need this law because they claim the feds haven't done enough to stop illegal immigration. the arizona governor jan brewer who signed this bill into law released a statement that reads, in part, today's filing is nothing more than a massive waste of taxpayer funds. these funds could be better used against the violent mexican cartels than the people of arizona. anita vogel on fox top story in our northwest newsroom. strong reaction from arizona law
